Canada in 1705, as an instructor in the Jesuits' College at Quebec.
Returned to France in 1709. It was at this time that he gathered the
material for his Histoire et Description Generale de la
Nouvelle-France. Again visited Canada in 1720 by order of the French
government to report as to the best route for an overland expedition in
search of the Western Sea. In the course of this journey visited the
mission and posts of what was then the extreme western frontier of New
France, returning to France in 1723, by way of Mobile. =Index=: (Bishop Laval era) On
